COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
This month is Deacon Nomination month. It is my prayer that you talk to the Lord Jesus and ask Him to give you wisdom in nominating the man that is pleasing to Him. The Deacon Ministry is to bring glory to The Lord Jesus not only in the service that is accomplished, but in the lives that are lived setting a godly example for the church as well as to the world.
First Baptist Preschool is starting up once again after enjoying a beautiful summer. I hope you will pray for this vital ministry as our church reached out to these children with the gospel teaching them at this tender age that Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so. Pray for the teachers and students as they prepare for this new school year.
Daniel 5:23b, “And the GOD in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.”
Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon for about 43 years. He had power like no other. It was because of this power that pride took control of Nebuchadnezzar’s heart until the Lord of heaven humbled him by taking away his ability to reason, turning him into a mad man. For seven years Nebuchadnezzar lived outside with the animals and during this time, others directed the affairs of state until he came to his senses. The moment his reasoning returned, he began to worship God and humble himself before the Lord. Belshazzar, Nebuchadnezzar’s grandson knowing what had happened to his grandfather chose to drink wine out of the cups that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem and throw a big drunken bash. God who will judge the living and the dead wrote a letter on the plaster wall to the arrogant King and told him that his time was up; that night he was killed and another Nation took over the kingdom of Babylon. I wonder how much longer we have as a nation. We too are throwing drunken parties and mocking the God of heaven and earth. We too are rebelling against truth and laughing at the Bible. It is just the mercy of God that we have not experienced the same fate that Babylon experienced. Oh, that we as a Nation would have enough sense to follow the lead of ancient Nineveh who repented at the preaching of Jonah and was spared the Judgement of God.
Daniel 4:37, “Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honor the King of Heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those who walk in pride he is able to abase.”
In Christ, Ricky
